Good idea, good execution, and the whole thing just feels very different from what everybody else is doing right now. My only complaint is the short length, but that’s minor. Generally, more modern rap needs to stray into blues territories. Seems like it would be a natural thing, considering how much rappers love to bitch vis-a-vis the fact that blues turns bitching into a profound art form.
